FRIDAY, JANUARY 27,1030. THE DATLT COTmTER, CONNTCT.J.,SVTLT,E. PA. PAGE NINE. Factor in Learning, School Teachers Told The combined teachers meeting of the Connellsville city and Dunbar township school districts, held annually at Conr.ellsviUc High School Auditorium, completed ·· the first of the two-day educational conferences Thursday with three speakers stressing the need for reading instruction Jf in order that the student might have a better conception of other subjects. Highlighting the afternoon entertainment progranv interspersed between speeches, were three numbers played by the Connellsville High School Orchestra, directed by Bandmaster Richard H. Gingrich; a song by eighth grade girls' ensemble, and a solo by Marjoric Herd with Carl -~ T. Anstine, supervisor of music in the High School, accompanying at the piano. Dr. O. R. Bontrager, assistant director of training school at California State Teachers College, opened the afternoon session with a talk on "Who Is the Reading Teacher or What IK Heading?" ' Dr. liontrager stated that the most important thing taking place in a classrcom is learning--and that learning only takes place under certain conditions. He said his conception of a reading teacher was any person who dealt -with youngsters and directed their learning in a reading situation. "It is important that learning situations be reatly adjusted to the needs of the youngster and a teacher should help develop reading tastes, thereby widening the student's experience," he declared. He named a number of reading situations including reading for information, reading to verify a fact or an opfnlon, reading to form a b.'isis for judgment and reading for recreational purposes. "" Dr. Bontrager said'in his opinion that the 'least learning probably ! tqkes place when there is a recitation ' every day." He r.uggestcd other , methods be employed. Dr. Gerald Alan Yoaknm, profes- | sor of. education and director of courses In elementary education at the University of Pittsburgh, spoke on "New Developments in Adapt- ·v ing Reading Instruction to Individual Differences." He suggested that by doing away with the,grade schools and placing youngsters of an age range between six and nine years in a group that could be divided into classes according to individual ability, more and quicker progress could be made with that group of youngsters, than under the present system. The chief obstacle to this plan is the fact that people arc accustomed to grades where promotion from one grade to another shows some kind of achievement. Another plan suggested by Dr. Yoakam is that students be promoted every year regardless of what has been achieved so as to keep all within the same age group. He said children should advance steadily correspondingly to rate of growth. Dr. Emmett Albert Belts, research professor in elementary education ~" and director of the reading clinic at Pennsylvania State College, concluded the day's speaking program with a discussion of the "Bases for Effective Reading Instruction." First, he said, a teacher mus't understand learning and secondly, provide systematic guidance. Dr. Belts said ho didn't believe in holding back a student because he - didn't measure up to a certain standard as that would mean the student would have to study the same books for another year and if he didn't learn anything the first time it was because the proper stimulus had not been used. "The proper procedure would be to provide a new stimulus. Delve Into the case history of the student and try to ascertain what would be best for him," he declared. Hines Judge Judge Charles C. Nott, Jr. Judge Chnrles C. Nott, Jr., presiding at the second trial in New york of James J. Hiries, is pictured \,\ ha chambers. The first attempt to convict the Tammany leader for alleged connection with the policy racket, ended in a mistrial. Prevention Method Of Pneumonia Given Boost by Scientist By International News Service. NEW YORK, Jan. 27.--Discovery of a new method lor prevention of pneumonia by using a sort o£ artificial vaccine which Is a step toward finding a universal key to immunity ogalcst such germs wus revealed a the Rockefeller Institute lor Mcdica Research. Dr. Walter F. Gocbcl of the institute has been following lines laid down by Dr. Karl Landstciner, Dr. O. T. Avery and other noted scientists who arc engaged in a search of chemical means of conquering Infectious diseases. Pneumonia has been subjected to chemical analysis of the most minute and exhaustive sort. This difficult work is going on." Its result so far is the discovery that the symptoms of pnuemonia'ln human beings are produced by particular substances present in the germs. . Arr.on.3 the disease-producing germ substances arc certain kinds'of sugar- like materials, known as sacchnridcs. "Different types of pneumonia germs, responsible for different varieties of pneumonia, have specific saccharides. After having separated them, the scientists at the Rockefeller Institute have studied their chemical structures/ Dr. Gocbcl found that the slightest shifting 'Of atoms and molecules in these substances resulted in change of properties. Dr. Gocbel succeeded in producing an artificial antigen, a partial imitation of germ substance of a sugar- like nature. This was injected into mice", which dccvloped resistance to several types o/ pneumonia germs, while mice pot thus immunized, anc used as controls, all sickened and f jd. '.rhe immunized animcJs remained healthy, despite the injection of large doses of deadly germs. Some Scoring Record. DAYBROOK, W.
